Bistro Pierre Lapin is a new French restaurant from the chef behind Harold’s Meat + Three and an old NYC classic, Commerce. Commerce has been gone for a while, but the restaurant’s famous chicken can be found on the menu at Bistro Pierre Lapin, along with some additions to the usual French bistro menu - like a short rib stuffed pasta and a bone in pork chop. The room is a bit stiff, but otherwise it’s a restaurant we’ve consistently enjoyed.
